NOTES: Songs of a bird well seen moving along trunk 15-18 m away and as low as 3 m up near active nest along trail at 600 m marker in deciduous forest on top of Serra; the second part of the recording highlighted the same bird as the first (if not its mate), now seen carrying food; the third part of the recording represented a feeding pass at the nest, located about 6-10 m up in a cavity of a 10-12 cm diameter branch about half way up a relatively large apparently dead tree right at the top of a small ridge along the trail; the cavity appeared to be located right where an old branch had broken off; the adult came in quietly, entered the nest, fed the nestlings, and then exited; this same bird(s) was later recorded on 24 August, when the nestling appeared to fledge; blue sky overhead but quite hazy/smoky over river; I changed batteries between recording the two parts of this cut [= RCR008-010 & RCR007, the latter with GPS coordinates]. Number of individuals=NU1+;. Other Behaviors: Advertise, Establish Parent Young Contact, Beg, Care For Young, Social Context: Family. Habitat: Forest, Deciduous Forest, Scrub, Rocky.
